Presbyterian Church to Premiere ‘Already Here’

Falls Church Presbyterian Church (FCPS) invites the public to attend the premiere of “Already Here,” a sacred choral piece which will be performed during the FCPC’s 10:45 a.m. worship service on April 15.

Internationally recognized composer and conductor Dominick DiOrio, who will be present at the premiere, made his Carnegie Hall debut as a conductor at age 28.

His works have appeared at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and the Kimmel Center, as well as numerous international venues. DiOrio is an associate professor of music at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.

“Already Here” sets to music the original poem “Kingdom,” by local poet and FCPC Chancel Choir member Myra Binns Bridgforth.

FCPC’s Director of Music, Dr. Lisa A. Billingham, will be conducting. Joining her will be Dr. Lisa Bloy on organ and Dr. Meg Owens on oboe.

This commission is made possible by FCPC’s Heiden Music Endowment Fund, celebrating its 30th year of supporting music at the church.
